REVIEW ARTICLES

Osteoarthritis of the Glenohumeral Joint
Nonsurgical Treatment Options
Loss of forward flexion, elevation of the affected dominant shoulder, and joint-space narrowing on imaging studies are important clinical hallmarks of glenohumeral osteoarthritis. The first treatment step is to reduce pain and inflammation and address the potential for associated rotator cuff injury. Once pain subsides, rotator cuff and scapular muscle strengthening exercises are instituted to control and center the humeral head.
David G. Carfagno, DO; Todd S. Ellenbecker, MS, PT, SCS

Pumping Insulin During Exercise
What Healthcare Providers and Diabetic Patients Need to Know
Insulin pumps help diabetic patients maximize their exercise and sports experiences because the devices help them take some of the guesswork out of maintaining glycemic control. Physicians can support patients' activity goals by knowing the benefits, limitations, and safety issues of insulin pump use and by recommending the models that are most effective for exercisers.
Sheri R. Colberg, PhD; John Walsh, PA, CDE

Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy
Which Nonoperative Strategies Are Best?
Lower urinary tract symptoms can influence a man's lifestyle and raise his concerns about prostate cancer. The physician's vital role is to rule out underlying conditions, recommend nonoperative treatment options such as behavioral modification or medication, and maintain vigilant follow-up.
Michael J. Wehle, MD; Scott W. Lisson, MD
